Nissan has held a presentation in the United States of the Rogue crossover, which is sold in the rest of the world, including Russia, under the name X-Trail. The model is very popular in the American market, and almost a third of the brand's sales falls on it. Versions for other countries will debut at a later date.
The SUV became the first model of the brand built on a new platform - the new Mitsubishi Outlander will also receive it. The crossover has become 38 mm (4652 mm) shorter and 5 mm lower (1695 mm) than its predecessor. However, Nissan claims that the X-Trail has more space in the cabin.
- The novelty received bunk headlights and a large radiator grill with a large chrome insert. The rear doors now open almost 90 degrees and the boot width is 1,158 mm - one of the best in class according to Nissan.
The salon has become much richer. From now on, the model has leather-trimmed seats with diamond stitching, as well as leatherette on the dashboard and door cards. Like the front seats, the rear sofa is built using proprietary Zero Gravity technology, developed in conjunction with NASA. At the back there are also mounts for three child seats at once.
- The list of equipment includes adaptive cruise control, which independently slows down before leaving the highway thanks to interaction with built-in navigation, a 12.3-inch digital dashboard, three-zone climate control, a 10.8-inch head-up display, curtains on the rear windows, multimedia with a nine-inch screen and online services, as well as the Vehicle Motion Control function, which is able to anticipate the driver's actions and intervene in control.
- In the United States, only a 2.5-liter aspirated gasoline engine has been announced for the crossover, boosted from 171 to 184 horsepower. The variator is now controlled by a non-fixed selector, and a washer for selecting five driving modes is installed next to it. The all-wheel drive system has received a new electro-hydraulic clutch in the rear wheel drive, which responds faster to front wheel slip.
Nissan's new crossover will be the first to hit the US market. This will happen in the fall of 2020. The start of sales in other countries will be announced later.
